Sky Message

Up there, cracked crust,
Continental drift, ancient collisions,
Earth history sped up
On that blue canvas,
A million years in a day.

Cirrocumulus shaped just right,
If you were blind and could
Reach out it would be brail
In the sky, only those few
Could read it.

I do not know what it would say,
A message from those before perhaps,
Or from the earth before people walked it.
We are just spectators here,
We are more temporary than the shifting skies.

Cloud Everest

When those sky creatures build up
The right way in the summer heat,
Craggy cumulus mountain peaks
Somewhere our souls seek to summit.

If one looks up and thinks, most don’t,
That calling is there, the whole range
Morphing and shifting something strange
That the sky map shows and land maps won’t.

Spirit looks to the tallest form,
Aborigines born out of red
Rock in the heart where earth is dead,
A legend spreads of where we are born.

A Cloud Everest no one can climb,
Temporary tortures and leaves,
Mountains no one could conceive
Become lost in the wandering mind.

A seeking soul, a traveler,
That same reason for land searching
And climbing and wanting and dancing
Strung out above the wanderer.

Recognize that all may be blest,
Kit up and go! The puffs of ice
That don’t exist but in this life,
Climb what’s yours that Cloud Everest!
